Pence Knocks Abrams Over Celebrity Support: 'This Ain't Hollywood, This Is Georgia'

Oprah backs Stacey Abrams in historic Georgia governor's raceMore

"I'm the only candidate with a plan to get that done and to do that without vitriol, without vilifying people", she said.

This was Winfrey's first foray into midterm politics this year, after largely sitting out the 2016 presidential campaign.

"When you go to church on Sunday, tell people to go to the polls and vote", he said.

According to the Associated Press, only a deputy registrar can verify proof of citizenship at a polling place, which the groups argued amounted to an undue burden.

A federal appeals court has rejected the Georgia Secretary of State's appeal in a lawsuit involving absentee ballots.

Hamilton secured P3, and will start alongside his title rival Vettel, with Bottas and Raikkonen behind them. The rivalry within the Red Bull ranks has not escaped Vettel's attention either.

It is unknown how many Georgians received the robocall.

The Democratic candidate, Stacey Abrams, is campaigning to be the first black female governor in U.S. history.

Republicans in Georgia, including Kemp, have pushed for strict voter ID laws, citizenship checks and aggressive voter roll maintenance in the name of protecting elections against fraud and noncitizens voting.

"We're here to support Stacey Abrams".

She faces Republican Brian Kemp, who was appearing with Vice President Mike Pence at a trio of events in the state Thursday. "She's a woman who dared believe she could change the state of Georgia".

Broncos May Be Entering Rebuild Mode After Demaryius Thomas Trade
Unless he can lead the Broncos to wins in the team's next few games, he may be out of a job soon. Thomas's first game with the Texans will be against the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.

Prominent state Republicans have called the controversy "manufactured" and said it was meant to gin up support for Democrats ahead of the election.

In her remarks at Thursday's town hall with Abrams, Winfrey told the crowd that she is a registered independent, "because I don't want any party and I don't want any kind of partisan influence telling me what decisions I get to make for myself".

"These automated calls are being sent into homes just days before President Trump arrives, reminding voters exactly who is promoting a political climate that celebrates this kind of vile, poisonous thinking", Collazo said.

Ross also said Kemp must also update the secretary of state's website with guidance for voters flagged as noncitizens, including contact information for voters to call with questions.

Kemp's campaign did not respond to a request for comment.
